This is a nice Biblical map of the kingdoms of Judea and Israel as they were during the reign of King Solomon. The map extends to include a large part of the Arabian desert as well. Putti hold up the title cartouche and another adorns the distance scale. A large vignette depicts one of the battles of Solomon. Engraved by Jan van Jagen.
